The Photographic Angle (TPA) is a charitable organisation set up to promote the education of the public in the art and science of photography. We stage exhibitions that are free to enter and that travel across the UK transforming otherwise empty spaces into photographic galleries. Exhibitions comprise large scale photographs together with technical data, information about the photographic theme, boards containing inspirational quotes and boards containing hints and tips on photography. Professional, student and amateur photographers submit their work for possible inclusion in one of our travelling exhibitions, which are curated by our Head of Design. The work that we do offers the public a chance to explore this fascinating medium which can be art, a profession, or simply a pastime.

Let me take you by the hand...

…and lead you through some ‘Streetscapes’ in London!

Ok, a tenuous link, but we want to let you know that our much-loved ‘Streetscapes’ theme is coming to London very soon.

If you’re in the area, come along to 1-2 Welbeck Street, Marylebone from Saturday 16th to Wednesday 20th June, open from 10am to 3pm each day.

All the images in this exhibition have been taken within cities and towns. They are contemporary records of urban life, but they are also testament to mankind’s ingenuity in adapting to new and challenging environments.

We look forward to welcoming you there!

Competition - Seasons

In temperate and sub-polar regions, four calendar-based seasons are generally recognized: spring, summer, autumn (or fall), and winter. These four seasons are marked by changes in weather, ecology and variations in the amount of daylight that we experience. They vary significantly in characteristics and each season has a very distinctive mood.

In this competition we are looking for images that capture and reflect the mood of the season.

We’re looking forward to seeing your most memorable shots.

This competition closes for entries on 30th June 2018 at midnight (GMT)

The photographs were amazing and the contrast in colours, technique and perspective was amazing. A large variety of artists which was good.

This was the lovely feedback we received from a visitor to one of our venues in Birmingham

Feedback My Country

Really love the photos, especially the black and white ones. Think the building and light is really different to most exhibitions. Love it.

Patterns Feedback

Fabulous exhibition and layout. Particularly liked the hints on taking pictures – all expressed in ordinary language – no excessive technical stuff – all about the composition.

Our submission process has changed

Anyone who has submitted work to be included in one of our catalogues in the past, would have done this via a submissions page link. However, due to an overwhelming and fantastic response to our competitions, TPA have decided to curate its catalogues from the best of our competition entrants. The quality of work submitted to competitions over the years has been outstanding hence the decision to merge the two.

In short, anyone interested in having their work displayed at our venues should enter our competitions instead. The favourites will be contacted in due course throughout the year as and when a new catalogue print is scheduled. Please view our competitions page for further details.
